Multi-Year Master Service Contract S&B Secures EPC Contract for Expanding Plastics Pyrolysis Unit in USA
S&B Engineers and Constructors has been awarded an EPC contract for expanding New Hope Energy’s plastics pyrolysis unit in Texas, USA. On completion, the expansion is expected to add 420 metric tons of capacity daily to convert plastic waste to chemical feedstocks in the existing facility.
Houston/USA – S&B Engineers and Constructors (S&B) signs a multi-year master service agreement to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for New Hope Energy’s plastics pyrolysis unit. The initial project under this partnership is the expansion in Tyler, Texas.
The expansion will add 420 metric tons per day of capacity to convert plastic waste to chemical feedstocks in the existing facility. This expansion will allow the Tyler plant to divert more than 300 million pounds of plastic waste from landfills annually. The project also represents a long-term alliance between S&B and New Hope Energy, an environmental technology company developing advanced chemical recycling systems.
S&B will provide full EPC services for the pyrolysis unit expansion to industrial-scale using the Lummus New Hope Plastic Pyrolysis Technology to process plastic waste into renewable chemical feedstocks. The project began in late 2021, with construction completion and commissioning expected in early 2024.
